LESSON Advertisers use many techniques of persuasion to make us want to purchase their products.

In this unit, we will focus on 5 persuasive techniques advertisers use to entice an audience: Bandwagon Avant-Garde Testimonials Facts and Figures Transfer

LESSON Bandwagon: Advertisers make it seem that everyone is buying this product, so you feel you should buy it too.

Example: The best, most exciting board game is sweeping the nation. All your friends and neighbors are playing. LESSON Avant-Garde This

technique is the opposite of Bandwagon. Advertisers make it seem that the product is so new that you will be the first on the block to have it. Example: Hurry and be the first to own the new iPhone 4s with the newest

technology! LESSON Testimonials Advertisers use celebrities and regular people to endorse products.

Example: Im Katy Perry, and Proactiv works on me! LESSON Facts & Figures Statistics,

percentages, and numbers are used to convince you that this product is better or more effective than another product. Example: 30% more effective than the leading brand. 4 out of 5 dentists recommend.

LESSON Transfer Wants you to associate the good feelings created in the ad with the product.
